Background: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is relatively frequent in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and can be extremely disabling. Surgical interventions are less effective for the treatment of MS-related TN compared with […]
Background: High-resolution three-dimensional (3-D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is widely used to predict the neurovascular anatomy within the cerebellopontine angle. Objective: To assess the value of 3-D steady-state free precession […]
Background: The key to successful microvascular decompression of the neurovascular compression syndrome is maintenance of the separation between the nerve and the offending vessel. Objective: We describe a transposition technique […]
This video shows how after the transposition of the vessel with the arachnoidal membrane a small piece of muscle or Teflon may be positioned to firmly retain the vessel in […]
This video demonstrates how the offending vessel can be passed behind and above the petrosal venous complex to solve the neuro vascular compression.
